The 12 Highest Paid Oil & Gas CEOs

The 12 Highest Paid Oil & Gas CEOs

Not only does oil and gas provide the life-giving fuel that powers our modern lifestyle, it also has a legacy of often leaving wealth and abundance in its wake. Following the devastating real estate collapse of 2007-2009, it was oil and gas that virtually single-handedly filled Texas and North Dakota’s state surplus budgets to over $2 Billion each within 4 years.

The top-paid CEO in America comes from the natural gas sector. No shock, many of the highly compensated executives the last two years work in the fossil fuel sector; oil and gas in particular. Of curious note however, no CEO from the coal industry appeared on this list, which extends through Robert Walker of Anadarko Petroleum at $15,765,017, although Consol Energy Inc’s J. Brett Harvey was not far behind at $15.1 million. Also conspicuously absent is any representation from the renewable energy sector.

The list is accumulated from multiple sources, including Equilar’s Top 200, Forbes 10 Highest Paid Bosses, and the AFL-CIO’s 100 Highest Paid CEOs, and represents each list’s best compensation estimates from 2013 and 2014.

    This proves how the oil companies are screwing consumers. Oil going down and gas going up inversely. Oil and gas are natural resources and should belong to the public! Just pay oil companies a reasonable fee to extract and process them!
